The NFL overturned Joplo Bartu's two-game suspension.

He received a two-game ban for pleading no contest to DUI, but after filing paperwork with the league, the NFL dropped Bartu's suspension and instead fined him $50,000. Bartu finished third on the team with 83 tackles last season.

Second-year UDFA Joplo Bartu is running as the Falcons' starting inside linebacker next to Paul Worrilow at training camp.

Both Bartu and Worrilow are second-year undrafted free agents who struggled as rookies. Pro Football Focus graded Worrilow as a bottom-ten inside linebacker last season, among 55 qualifiers. Bartu showed well in run defense, but was the league's third worst 4-3 outside linebacker in pass coverage per PFF. We'll be sure to target Atlanta's defense in fantasy matchups this season.
